The Probate and Family Court has published the second edition of the MUPC Estate Administration Procedural Guide.  It reflects the development of procedures since the publication of the first edition four years ago.  It is an excellent source, and we recommend it for anyone involved in estate administration.

The Probate Court MUPC Hub is another place to go for guidance when probating an estate.  Many forms were revised in April, so check the forms page for the latest versions.  The Trial Court Law Libraries page on Probate of Estates is another source for links to the statutes, as well as other helpful material on the web.
